“... accumulates into an amazingly creative and original juxtaposition
of rock, country, vigour and sass.” – Fervor Coulee
With what PopMatters describes as "tenacious swagger," critically-acclaimed solo artist Ashleigh Flynn recently dialed up the volume and debuted an all-female rock band as a nod to the “Rosie the Riveter” archetype from WWII.
Flynn grew up in Kentucky and cut her teeth on local bluegrass music and Motown. A prolific songwriter and performer blessed with unbridled charisma, she arrived on the Americana scene in 2008 with the release of her third LP, American Dream, a poetic lament to the elusiveness of that national ethos. A Million Stars followed in 2013 – a rollicking journey celebrating the women pioneers of the American West.
Ashleigh Flynn & The Riveters’ inaugural LP hit the streets in 2018 featuring a sound that hearkens back to early Stones, ‘70s psychedelic country rock, and alternately charms like a Sunday afternoon front porch session...
“Ashleigh Flynn & The Riveters laid down one of the best sets of this year's festival with tight, professional rollicking Americana that defies geography. From the soul of the City to the call from the Holler, you won't find a better band. ” – Brian Keogh, Mainstage Coordinator, Oregon Country Fair

“What you get when you mix an LA rocker with Keith Richards chops; a thumping rhythm section; soaring fiddle, keyboards and backing vocals; all fronted by a singer-songwriter once described as a cross between the Indigo Girls and Johnny Cash.”
